  • GPS–based slope monitoring systems and their applications in transition mining from open–pit to underground

    Combining methods of open–pit and underground mining can yield maximum economic outcomes, while they may also cause large–scaled geological hazards, such as landslides. Failure to prevent landslides in mining areas could result in losses and damages to equipment, surrounding environments, and even human lives. In this paper, we report the application of global positioning system (GPS) for ...

  • Evaluating truck turn time in grounded operations using simulation

    This paper presents in detail techniques for developing simulation models of marine container terminals using Arena. It illustrates the concepts by modelling the Port of Houston's Barbours Cut Container Terminal (BCT) and subsequently discusses how the model can be used to answer one of many operational questions BCT management had ? how many yard cranes are needed to reduce truck turn time to a ...

  • Co-operatives and fair-trade

    Introduction This paper is meant to provide a first insight into an apparently new range of activities of the co-operative movement: fair-trade activities. Some may claim that fair-trade or at least ethical trade is an essential characteristic of the co-operative movement from day one. Still, we could argue that fair-trade as a concept is very much associated with attaining development ...


  • Development of a Combination Inclinometer-Deflectometer and ADAAS

    A newly developed transverse deformation gage, called the combination inclinometer-deflectometer, and special features of its automated data acquisition and analysis system (ADAAS) are described. The hybrid, two-in-one instrument and the ADAAS contribute to the enhancement of accuracy, reliability, and precision of ground movement ...
